With over 200 shoots last year, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of amazing families. This couple was one of them. I recently received an email asking if I’d be interested in shooting her 40th birthday party. Besides not believing she was really 40, I gladly accepted. It was a fun party and we captured some really special moments.
I typically suggest newborn sessions to be scheduled within the first week of birth in hopes of a really sleepy subject. This one we squeezed in at 4 days because I was headed out on vacation the following week. I was shocked when the baby was awake the majority of the session. We had the heat cranked and the bottle ready. Although she was awake, we still captured some priceless shots. The one on the right is a classic that I wish I would have captured when my last baby was born. It just isn’t the same when the smallest hand isn’t tiny. I love it!
Some women are afraid of maternity photos and some really embrace them. I showed this couple a handful of photos when we first met to see what they liked and didn’t like. They were both natural in front of the camera and we had a really fun session. To see more from this session, check the maternity portfolio.
This little guy’s mama always comes with props in toe. From our maternity, newborn and now this 3 month session, she has had several fun ideas. One of the things she wanted to do was to keep his name blocks in all the photos, which I think is a cute idea. It will be fun to see how big he is compared to the blocks on his first birthday!
I’m pretty sure this was my first time on a snowmobile and what was I doing? I was riding backwards and taking pics of this little boy riding his own snowmobile! I was shocked, amazed, and I’m not going to lie because I was squeezing the seat as tightly as I could with my legs so I didn’t fall off! Photography is always an adventure!
